    The Jewel is always good. Have eaten there on a number of occasions, mainly lunch, and the food and service are always excellent. Great for a catch-up in a quiet setting.

    We enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious. We loved the eggplant dish especially. We’ll definitely be back next time we’re in Canberra.

    We had vegetarian dishes with some rice and naan. Food was beautiful but service was very ordinary. There was only one other group there so expected better service really.

    We returned to this restaurant after having had a great experience 5 years ago. We were not disappointed! We chose the Jewel banquet, which was delicious. The staff were very helpful and attentive. We will definitely return when we next visit Canberra.

    A wonderful Indian restaurant. The food was superb and the staff were welcoming and proficient. One of the best Indian meals we've had, and highly recommend to anyone who enjoys good cuisine.

    The food at the Jewel is always good. The best curries you will have. The service tonight was a bit slow but that’s OK - we were not in a particular hurry. I always have a problem, however when takeaways take over the business of serving the customers in the restaurant and it happens so often. The Jewel will always be our GOTO Indian restaurant.

    This used to be our favourite Indian but the standards have dropped. The food was average and poorly presented as were the drinks. The waitress was rude and incompetent. Disappointing.

    2.5/10

    I had been here before with friends which is why I came back with my family, this time it was extremely disappointing. We were a family of 4, had to wait for our order to be taken, then wait a very long time for just one starter and then wait even longer for our mains. The staff seemed too busy running after their white guests ( who came after us) that they couldn't be bothered with us Asians. When the food finally arrived they had not even bothered to wipe the under-surface of the serving dishes, which left black stains all over the white tablecloth. I looked around at other tables but no one else seemed to share this issue (maybe they couldn't be too fussed with Asians customers)!!! The chicken pieces in the butter chicken were huge, hadn't even been chopped up. All the curry portions were very small, butter chicken, beef vindaloo and lamb rogan all tasted very mediocre and below par. Overall pretty disappointing, Next time, we might go to an Indian restaurant where Asians are not made to feel second rate !!!!

    The food was excellent. I had the Prawn Vindaloo which was wonderfully flavourful and spicy and my partner had the Lamb Roganjosh which was perfectly seasoned. The portions were generous and it was overall a great meal.

    Don't come here for a romantic night out. Lighting and ambience dreary and the music was initially some kind of Indian techno and then later gave way to silence which was disappointing as the dance music was partially drowning out the wailing baby. To call the service indifferent would be to slander indifference. The food was nice enough, standard Indian fare, nothing startling. How this place is #17 of restaurants in Canberra on TripAdvisor is a mystery for the ages. Felt deceived. On the good side the wine list is cheap and the restaurant is not expensive. We may have just struck them on a bad night.

    A/C wasn't working. The Onion Baji had a filler and were not hot. The lamb kababs were not hot and I'm sure were not cooked in the tandoor. We are visitors to Canberra and have dined at The Jewel previously. So disappointing. Will not go back.
